Everybody loves a sassy stage performer! Tonight saw 28-year old secondary school teacher Tonatha Raihan take on the challenge to audition and showcase her diva moves in front of Simon Cowell & the rest of the judges, on this evening’s X Factor.


Raihan from Kent danced along the stage whilst belting out a passionate rendition of Beyonce’s hit ‘Work It Out’ from the Austin Powers movie soundtrack. The judges loved her stage presence with Simon Cowell saying: “Seriously, you must be the coolest school teacher in the world. I really like you”.

Keeping her audition tight-lipped, Tonatha revealed she had not told her work colleagues prior to the audition. The judges asked on if she has a strict teaching style and Tonatha responded to explain that she will have fun with her pupils, but when it’s time to work, you better put it in!
